Hi Hartmut,

I think your arguments hold, but it’s just one side of the story.

The other side of the story is that having our own installer, while
being an additional burden, also means we can adapt it more easily and
offer better integration—for instance, the fact that it knows about
‘operating-system’ declarations and services means that it could perform
sanity checks, offer users to “browse” their OS declaration, and so on.

And last but not least: the installer exists now, which makes the
question kinda moot IMO.  :-)
